Painted Poppies – a special card for a special person!!

Today I am featuring a lovely bundle of crafting products.  It is part of new suite called Peaceful Poppies which includes a stamp set full of beautiful images and sentiments, more co-ordinating dies, beautiful papers, ribbon, sequins & printed vellum elements.

Peaceful Poppies suite

One of my good friends, Suzanne has left our shores to go home. We met through Stampin’ Up! and she was a much loved part of my Indigostampin team, as well as a great friend and will be missed. So I wanted to make her a special farewell card & decided to use this suite.

Here’s my card:

 I wanted really vivid colours for these poppies so I used 3 colours from the Pigment Sprinkles (Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody and a small amount of Melon Mambo) on watercolour paper for the petals. It’s easy, just wet your watercolour paper & sprinkle on your desired colours. Let the water do the work! Let it dry & then die cut. Such strong beautiful colours!

I also used a small piece of the designer series paper (those green vertical lines) and a piece of whisper white cardstock, run though my die cutter with a Subtle embossing folder. I then flicked some green and gold ink onto the white paper to get the splotchy effect.

There are dies in the bundle that cut the gold foil outlines to these flowers, as well as the layered leaves and flower centres. Very striking & easy to construct! The possibilities are endless in terms of the colour and texture you can create.

This die set is called Poppy moments and is part of the Peaceful moments bundle that includes the dies and stamp set. Remember if you like to stamp and die cut your images, it is worth buying co-ordinating sets together as you receive a 10% discount on them.

Here is an image of the other bundle within this suite. I love these images as well as the detailed dies for labels and subtle backgrounds.

Don’t forget SALE-A-BRATION is current running (Jan – March) and that means for every $90 you spend on any Stampin’ Up! products you get your choice of FREE  crafting products. There are stamps, dies, embossing folders, designer series paper and more!!!

  1. Hey There. I found your blog using msn. This is a really well written article.
    I’ll make sure to bookmark it and return to read more of your useful information. Thanks for the post.
    I’ll definitely return.

  2. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user
    friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you have done
    a great job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Safari.

    Excellent Blog!
